Customer Testimonials

I bought several knives from your company over about 20 years, and never had a complaint with knives or quality. I loved most of them, that CIA-type double-edged boot knife was a winner in my book. I did have a tussle with a Bird & Trout knife that had a very thin blade. I kept stabbing myself through the sheath. When I talked to A.G., he said send it back for a refund so I did. No problem, happy customer. I have bought from Dozier and Keith Murr for many years, you carry quality products. Over the years, I have mentioned A.G. to Hunters and Outdoors men and we all agree, keep it up!

I bought the War Eagle Jigged Bone Barlow. It's a beautiful, well made knife at a very reasonable price. Nice bone scales. Good clean knife.

My wife and I have ordered many knives, of various sorts, over the course of many years. We have been extremely satisfied with all the knives we have ordered. Your shipping service is OUTSTANDING! We are usually told by the sales associate that the order will arrive within 7-10 days. It has ALWAYS been received much sooner! On one occasion I had a comment about a high-end knife I ordered and addressed this concern in writing. To my great surprise, I received a response within just a few days, from Mr. Russell, personally, fully addressing to my satisfaction the issues I had with the knife. In short, A.G. Russell is, in my opinion, a very reliable, dependable and professional organization, and a real pleasure with whom to conduct business. W. G. T. Lt. Col. U. S. Army, (Ret'd)

The design of the Smooth White Bone Small Doctor's Knife is outstanding. The parallel sides of the handle make it a very clean piece. The scalpel blade is the first time I have ever seen one in a folder and it's very nice. Also the striker pin (I'd call it a stop pin) and the modified blade tangs to accommodate it. It has a very high quality finish. I have several A.G. Russell knives that I like very much but this one tops them all.

Just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the price, quality and associated value of this Smooth White Bone Small Doctor's Knife. I am a long time customer and have never been disappointed by anything I've ever purchased from you. But this one in particular is outstanding. Opened the package, checked it out and it will be in my pocket from now on. Sometimes I'll buy something from you with the idea of possibly giving it to someone as a gift at some point. But not this one! Mine!

Sometime in the 1970's I responded to an ad in The American Rifleman magazine and ordered a stag handled two blade congress pocket knife. I had never heard the name Hen & Rooster but went ahead and took a chance. I like to believe that was my first dealing with A.G. Russell. It was a beautifully made knife and I carried it for years. Recently I decided I needed a new knife and checked out the Russell site and found the perfect one to replace the aging friend I've been carrying. I am a user and not a collector so my purchases are few and far between but once again I took a chance and ordered the Serpentine Stockman. In many ways it reminds me of that old H&R. It is very well made. There are no gaps anywhere, the blades are tight and the Spey is shaped in a way that makes it somehow more usable. I like the extra touch of stop pins as well. One more thing it has in common with the H&R is that it is as clean and polished on the inside as the outside. Apparently a lot of thought and pride went into the designing and manufacturing of this knife as I am sure is true of all of your products. For those that hesitate pulling the trigger on a purchase because of it's origin I can only say that while China is on one side of the pocket blade of my stockman, the name A.G. Russell is on the other and that is far more important and good enough for me. Thanks for taking the time to read this lengthy ramble and I hope for you all a most happy and successful New Year.

I love my Folding Cook's Knife, I use it all the time, I like showing off when cooking with it, cutting onions so thin but still together, no one can believe it is a folding cooking knife. It does everything its bigger brothers do, but with pride on a very sharp knife that does everything I ask of it.

For over 3 years know I have carried the A.G. Russell Cowboy pocket knife 6 days a week (on Sunday I replace it with the dressier single blade Sowbelly with Brown Rucarta). This knife is rugged and the federal shield gives it a touch of class. It takes a good edge. I have only had to sharpen it twice after hard use. Most of the time all it needs is stropping it on the bottom of my ceramic coffee mug a few strokes to bring it back to shaving sharp. The quality is excellent. After 3 years of constant use it still opens and snaps shut like a bank vault.

I received an A.G. Russell One-Handed Knife right after graduation from high school (1988) as a gift. I always had it with me when I could. I never had a single issue with it until I lost it. The quality of that knife was equal or superior to any I have owned since.

I have been an A.G. Russell customer for more than 35 or 40 years. My experience began with a Morseth blade that came in a kit and I have been to at least three locations of A.G. Russell in Springdale and Rogers, AR. I've never been dissatisfied with the service and that is more than I can say about ANY other association. I never miss visiting the store when in town.

Ian O. Stamps, AR

Thank you for continuing to serve the American knife industry and those of us who just enjoy doing business with you and your fine company.

Larry S. Pflugerville, TX

I recently ordered a War Eagle Stockman second with stag grips. The purpose was to replace a long time stockman that has been in my tool box, and seen much use for 30 or more years. This knife is so nice that I find it hard to just toss in a tool box, so I keep it in the box it came in, in the tool box. This is not the first time I have gotten in my Russell's order much more than expected. Thank you very much, and keep up the quality offerings. Have a nice day!

On a recent motorcycle trip I decided to stop in at the store in Rogers, Arkansas. I was pleased to see a nice, simple store layout with friendly people. It appeared most of what the catalog offers was in the store. I had a chance to see in person some of the knifes I was interested in browsing the catalogs. My surprise was the War Eagle Blades. The Drop Point Folder was a much nicer knife in build quality than I would have thought for the price point. I now have a souvenir of my visit and a new everyday knife. I've always been very satisfied with items purchased online and now I have a great memory of stopping in to see y'all. Thank You.

I just want to say how impressed I am with my K-93 Featherlite with VG-10 steel. One of the best knives if not the best that I have ever owned!!!

Rob D. Grove, Oklahoma

Thank you for the friendly and first class service I get when I'm in your store!

Rob D Grove, OK

I know there have been some who have cast doubt as to the manufacturing of knives in China, but let me be one to say that I am only glad that you found a way to keep your business fruitful, while still providing amazing quality to knife nuts like me. I have found absolutely NO reason for concern and feel that the knives being made are excellent in every way. Please keep doing what you must to stay in business and keep up the great work.

The Large Folding Hunter and the Gunstock lockbacks are incredible. Solid as a fixed blade, classic as granddad's knife, and made with a modern flair.

Dale D. Fayetteville, AR

I purchased one of your 3 ½” WEB lockback knives. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical at that price. But WOW!!! What a great little knife! I believe its worth triple the price! I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for the perfect EDC knife. Keep up the good work A.G.!

Phil B. Rock Springs, WY

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for all you have done for knife enthusiasts like me. I have always found you and your staff to be incredibly helpful, professional, and courteous and have enjoyed your catalogue and retail store for many years. Thank you all for being… you.
